This is a simple cartoon I drew first then painted of a Santa on a home-made sleigh, pulled by reindeer with his sack of toys on back of sleigh, and 2 Christmas trees to deliver to children. Of course, the whole concept of "Santa" is a fun imaginary way for children to be entertained during the long winter of early darkness everywhere, and dreary cold. I read a Mashable tweet the other day about how even Jews who do not celebrate Christmas can love all the trappings of Christmas holiday spirit of generous gift-giving, bright lights, wrapped presents, lots of food, parties and fun times. And I saw that a Muslim person had commented that Muslims could also enjoy christmas if ok, or similar words. OF COURSE, IT IS OK FOR ANYBODY TO ENJOY THE FUN OF CHRISTMAS. To read the meaning of Christmas, [that has nothing to do with this cartoon of Santa] read my post yesterday on my https://words-that-work-LLP.blogspot.com. And of course, any parent can dress up as Santa and decorate a Christmas tree, and give gifts to their children. The entire spirit of Christmas is a CELEBRATION that there is a Messiah and there is 1 way to heaven, and the Christmas story is all about the birth of The Messiah on the earth, as preparation for His ministry to reveal GOD THE FATHER to humans, and the plan of salvation, and a vision of heaven [in book of Revelations, KJV]. To read more about what Christians believe about JESUS, read https://salvation-is-free.blogspot.com. This cartoon is of inktense and acrylic and I drew it, painted it, signed it, photographed it more than once, uploaded it, and posted it to wish all a merry Christmas. It is on 8 x 11 paper that I sized with wheat paste to make it more archival. Copyrighted art and photos and words. See notice.

Also, you can see more of the art I made on these blogs of mine that I create one by one at different times. Also, all telephones on this account and any account of mine are my personal telephones located in my apt in Missouri and in my possession from the get-go. Some have different area codes but all are registered to me and paid for by me, and belong to me. I have other telephones not listed on this account for my safety sake and I have phones on several phone companies/carriers; and I have google voice for same reason: for staying alive since many threats were made to me and injuries caused to me by my 2nd exhusband [male DBP] in Colorado.
You can see more of the art I made on these blogs and each one is different since I make them one by one and often with art I made specifically for them:

About me Gloria Poole Registered Nurse artist photographer author illustrator cartoonist blogger:
This is my 2014 selfie of me Gloria Poole, RN, artist, photographer, writer, author, blogger . Also, I am STILL a single-again,twice-divorced, WHITE, Great Commission/ Southern Baptist, US citizen, born again, Christian, WOMAN. Nothing I change about my environment changes those facts.
This is my name that I wrote with digital ink with a computer software program [not with an app] to tell some of the things I do.
This is my hand as it looks this year 2015 on one of my Christian cross necklaces to remind all that I am a Southern Baptist/ Great Commission Baptist, who adheres to and believes in the Holy Bible as the inspired word of GOD including the commandments of GOD in Exodus chapter 20.I am born again, Christian,white, woman and adhere to the words of JESUS as The Messiah foretold by Old Testament.
Since I am a #prolife #Christian who takes seriously the commandment in Matthew 28: 18-20, KJV, I make an effort regularly to publish the gospel in some way, to promote the prolife cause and to be a good representative of Christianity. Being a good Christian does not mean turning a blind eye to sin, however, as some fake christians believe. It is not loving to stand by idly while people go to hell. So you can read about JESUS THE MESSIAH and how to be born again and get to heaven on this blog of mine:
If you don't know anything about JESUS The MESSIAH you can start learning on this site of mine that is #gospel from King James Holy Bible:
https://salvation-is-free.blogspot.com.The Great Commission is from Matthew 28:18-20, KJV.
This is my Georgia Baptist College of Nursing seal where I attended and graduated as a professional nurse and then became licensed by the state of Georgia years ago. I still have a R.N. license in Missouri but I cannot work in it because of concussions and trauma to me so I post info to try help public on the web on the #prolife, #personhood #publichealth causes.
This is the UGA display I made by using appliques I cut from the UGA book /alumni news they mailed to me as an alum, to remind all I also have a degree in business from the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business. .
